Strategic January spending for Lenny Curry PAC

Coming off a blockbuster December, Build Something that Lasts (the Lenny Curry PAC) spent more than it took in during January.

About $15,000 was raised in January, compared with almost $31,000 spent.

The notable donor of January: Elite Parking Services, the company of Dane Grey, one of two Jacksonville residents lauded in the State of the State address.

Grey, an African-American millennial Republican, has been tight with Curry for almost a decade; it is a matter of when, not if, Grey moves from the donor class to the candidate caste.

Expenditures, meanwhile, included a maximum donation to the campaign of Dorothy Hukill, the Senate chair of the Finance and Tax Committee that considers the Pension Tax Bill on Monday.

As well, Curry PAC gave to campaign accounts of Bill GalvanoCyndi StevensonChris Sprowls (a future Speaker of the House), David Simmons, Matt GaetzRitch WorkmanTom Lee and Debbie Mayfield.

But the generosity didn’t stop there. Let’s Get to Work got $5,000, which may help Rick Scott review that pension tax bill more favorably should it clear both houses. And the Florida Republican Senatorial Committee and national House Majority PAC got the same number.
